Lahore: The Telenor Super Kabaddi League has been enthralling audiences since the competition kicked off on May 2, 2018. And last Monday added another feather in the cap of SKL when an exhibition match of women’s Kabaddi took place. The closely-fought encounter between Strawberry Ambitions and Strawberry Dreams was chock-full of excitement, thrill, and drama; proving conclusively that sky is the limit for the women of today. The initiative of Telenor Super Kabaddi League to promote women’s Kabaddi (as well as women’s sports in general) will surely pay rich dividends in the near future.
Strawberry Ambitions edged out Strawberry Dreams 33-31 in an absolute nail-biter. The competing women gave the audience lots of pulsating moments and the match was an ultra-fine display of courage, skill, passion, determination, grit, and resilience as the competing teams put everything on the line in their bid for victory. The two teams fought tooth and nail for every point. Every raid and defensive play was homage to the strength and resolve of the women of today.
The historic women’s Kabaddi match taking place on the sidelines of Super Kabaddi League played an important role in showing just how gifted and talented the women of this country are. This game-changing encounter will surely go a long way in promoting not just women’s sports but the cause of women empowerment in general. There is nothing that a determined and committed woman cannot achieve and this breathtaking Kabaddi encounter proved just that.
A women’s Kabaddi match taking place at the Nishtar Park Sports Complex for the first time in Pakistan’s history was bound to make all the right headlines, and so it did. The event was one of the top trends on Twitter and other social media outlets. Organizers are hopeful that the event would trigger greater interest in women’s Kabaddi in the coming months and years.
Telenor Super Kabaddi League continues this week with the tournament reaching its conclusion. Pakistan’s first Kabaddi champions will be crowned with the final of the competition set to be played on Thursday (May 10, 2018).
